Jeff definitely seems more confident than when I saw him in PDX last Spring. Can't go with "Best." In my humble opinion that Honor lands squarely with JK. I saw him play with DSO approximately 50 times, and saw him play Jerry great in broad strokes. But the real clincher is ...He got to go the "Big Show." ....And...they gave him his BigBoy Pants. I can think of no greater honor than to have Phil let him not only play Garcia, but then let out the reigns and let him be John.
I love DSO. Seen many shows which start to finish were better entertainment than my 115 GD shows. Nothing in this world compared to Jerry when he was in the groove. But, if I'm being honest...there were shows when I hoped for magic that never materialized. Furthur ...to me... has brought all the magic back.
But...opinions are like...
